    Are you referring to particular incidents here? Sorry, I am not on the same page, as I wasn't around much last year.

    And whom do you actually mean when you talk about "neo-Nazis"? Since there is (to my knowledge) nobody in the whole world who calls himself a "neo-Nazi," I wonder to whom the derogative label applies? Only to self-acknowledged post-WW2 National-Socialists? Or does it include any nationalist? Anyone favoring ethnopluralism? Anyone being critical of uncontrolled immigration from Asia and Africa?

    Would you agree that using derogative labels can be a form of bullying, intimidation, and harassment, leading to self-censorship?

    Not on anything unrealistic and anachronistic, not to mention ungermanic, like national socialism is.
    What's realistic and not anachronistic and how would it solve our problems? 17th century "Classic Liberalism"? (I don't mean to be sarcastic, I am just drawing this from your profile.) What political system would you favor?

    Should Germanics worry to become a minority in their own countries? What impact on freedom, justice, and civil liberties would it have? Can democracy work when people are deeply divided along racial, ethnic and religious lines?

    I'm not obsessed with Jews and Aryans. I don't have any interest in dedicating my life to this duality that seems to plague Christian and Mohammedan worlds. I'm Christian with an interest in Indo-European spirituality, whether or not Jews and Arabs worm their way into the mix. My focus is on Gentile society, but acknowledge that we don't live in a vacuum or clinical, laboratory conditions.

    Something I've also noticed that kills discussion is that as soon as a thread becomes a bit heated, a moderator comes in and closes the whole discussion. This can leave the impression that debate is not desired, and if two or more people begin to argue, the rest are also prohibited from continuing to discuss the topic. This style of moderation also makes it easy for trolls and people with an agenda to influence the discussion level here. All they have to do is start arguing with someone and poof, discussion locked. On other forums, people who cross the line in the discussion are warned, or their posts deleted, while the rest can still participate, if they wish.

    On another vBulletin 4.2.2 forum,
    it is possible to exclude members from posting
    in single threads or whole sub forums.
    That forum banns posters totally for three days in average.
    Only occassionally members become banned totally for four month.
    It is a political forum : politikforen.net .

    Hello. This is to help people trying to login to Skadi. When I login to Skadi I get this error message:


    vBulletin Message
    Invalid Redirect URL (http://forums.skadi.net/)

    I then click on the Skadi Forum logo and I'm in the forum.

    I wonder how many people try to access the forum but can't.

    ^ It should be https://forums.skadi.net/ not http://..., that is what causes the invalid redirect.

    http:// must be hardcoded... somewhere, no idea where though... I've checked the site options, phrases and templates and couldn't find any http:// entry... We have only been using the HTTPS rewrite from vBulletin, but now we've switched on the .htaccess HTTPS rewrite, maybe this solves the issue. That means that effectively all http will be automatically rewriten to https. So we can either leave the forum rewrite on or switch it off, it won't make a difference, unless this error message is produced by the forum rewrite - in which case it would be better to switch it off.

    I tried logging out and back in and have no issues. Let us know if anyone still encounters this error, then we will switch the vbulletin rewrite off.

    If you are connecting http:, I suggest you connect to www.skadi.net, then there's a handy little link to the forum, that goes https:.

    A bigger question is, why does the dream host sleeping robot (Site not found), come up while connecting through proxies?

    I can connect via one proxy, then a day later, sleeping robot, so I move the another proxy, connects, then the process reverses.

    Currently the redirection page http://skadi.net has a big emblem

    www.skadi.net - Skadi, n.: Germanische Göttin der Unabhängigkeit, des Winters, der Jagd und des Krieges. Gattin von Njörd, Mutter von Freja.

    beyound that is a link pointing to http://www.skadi.net ( www meaning port 80 http, not 443 https )

    and a text line 'S k a d i F o r u m' pointing to https://forums.skadi.net/

    and the footer

    It's not necessary, HTTP requests are auto-forwarded to HTTPS (SSL). But as it turned out, our smilies were served unencrypted via HTTP (because some genius had specified the smiley URL rather than the smiley path when he added them to the forum), so Google Chrome complained that the site wasn't fully secure. We have fixed that now, as it gives members an uneasy feeling ... thanks for reporting it.

    A bigger question is, why does the dream host sleeping robot (Site not found), come up while connecting through proxies?

    I can connect via one proxy, then a day later, sleeping robot, so I move the another proxy, connects, then the process reverses.
    It had nothing to do with either proxies or VPN. At least not directly.

    When we moved to the new dedicated server, a Dreamhost glitch didn't remove the old IP address from the nameserver records. So half of the requests for www.skadi.net would be routed to the new server and half of them would be routed to the old shared server, i.e. to a now unconfigured IP address (and eventually the Dreamhost Sleeping Robot page would show up). This happened only with http://www.skadi.net but not with http://skadi.net, and it did happen exactly 50% of the time, no matter whether you use a VPN, a proxy or make a direct access.

    However, once you make a successful direct access via your standard nameservers (usually the ones from your ISP), the nameserver record of the domain gets cached, often with an extremely long time-to-live (to speed up accesses) and each and every access will be successful from then on. VPNs and anonymous proxies are often configured not to cache (or not for a long time), thus you were much more likely to make a fresh DNS request and would get the Dreamhost page with 50% probability. If you got it all the time, then you were unlucky.

    Also fixed ... thanks for pointing it out. You should actually consider becoming our security advisor.

    Thanks, we now auto-forward to SSL on www.skadi.net, too. Previously, it was only done on Skadi Forum itself (forums.skadi.net).

    We should actually consider to move the whole forum to skadi.net. We always wanted to have some other content on www.skadi.net, but since this never happened in 15 years, it's probably not going to happen anytime soon.

    This should also be fixed. I am not entirely certain, as I couldn't reproduce the error (but I recall that it once happened to me, too). Since I can't reproduce the error anymore, I am not certain whether our solution is water-tight, so in case you should still get this redirection error, please let us know. Then we can try something else. We actually have one or two other ideas what could be causing it.

    You hit the nail on the head. It's like discussing matters in a forum run by oversensitive sjw special snowflakes. A sad state of affairs indeed. I guess you're only allowed to discuss things if people agree with you 100% of the time (which is the definition of a cult)
